We were first established in 1923 in Central London as ‘F.L. Rouse & Co’.


We moved to our new home in Beaconsfield, 55 Station Road, where we have continued to support businesses and individuals ever since.


We became part of Vantis Plc, who were ranked 13th in Accountancy Age’s Top 100 in 2010. This saw us combine 4 well-established practices into the business, doubling our size and bringing significant experience. These firms included Booth Anderson Chester (Harrow), Brewer Higgins (Marlow), Wagstaff Chartered Accountants (Bracknell) and Wheawill and Sudworth (Victoria).


Following a management buyout from Vantis Plc by the Beaconsfield Partners in June 2010, we once again became an independent firm and ‘Rouse Partners’ was born.


We were awarded ‘Large Practice of the Year’ in the AccountingWEB Practice Excellence Programme following an independent client survey and judging from an expert panel. This award ranked our client satisfaction level amongst the highest in the UK.


Following significant year on year growth we were recognised and listed in Accountancy Age’s Top 100 accounting firms for the first time as an independent practice.


Following further growth we moved up in the Accountancy Age Top 100 accountancy firms to 84th position. We also were Finalists in the British Accountancy Awards for ‘Most Innovative Practice – Mid-tier’ .


We were greatly saddened by the passing away of Neil Relph our Managing Partner. Neil had a pride, energy and drive that was fundamental to the culture and growth of our firm over many years. But more than a colleague, Neil was a dear friend to us. Today, we strive to continue his legacy and to do him proud.


We were pleased to announce Leighton Bower as our Managing Partner.


As we reached 100 years in business, we have been marking our centenary with various fundraising and celebrations throughout the year.
